BELLEVILLE, IlL. (KSDK) - Dozens of people in Belleville learned this week they're losing their jobs.
The layoffs happened at Allsup, a company that represents people applying for disability payments.
Allsup says application approvals slowed down once the federal spending cuts known as the sequester went into effect. They are laying off 65 workers, mostly in Belleville.
The company will still have around 700 employees.
